About Me

Hi, my name is Irvin. I grew up in Florida and played in the State tournament in Florida. I came out to the University of Washington where I co-founded the Husky Tennis Club. The past 8 years I have been the head coach at Rainier Beach high school and am routinely play Open level tournaments. I also work at the Amy Yee Tennis Center and the Boeing Tennis Club as an on call professional. I have learned a lot from the head Boeing pro who is part of the USTA high performance program and coaches nationally ranked junior players. I have a played a key role in either starting or reviving a number of stuff for youth tennis in south Seattle including an urban middle school tennis league, Friday night tennis for teens, and free camps for youth in June. I am used to working with beginners as all of my players have never played before. I took a girl who had never played tennis to the District tournament in 4 years. That was a first for our school and in the toughest District in the State full of Prep schools (and usually the top players and schools in the State).

Teaching Style

I am pretty flexible. For beginners, I work a lot on technique, proper grips, and generating topspin. That will be a lot of feeding. Usually teach two handed backhand, semi western forehand, serve mechanics (either platform or pinpoint), volley fundamentals, etc. For more experienced players, I want to help them work on what they want to work on so I try to adapt to their needs as well as any glaring things I see in their technique. I am always trying to learn more about the game and effective in game strategy.
